Sashika/Japanese Boro Embroidered Jeans for 4th of July
« on: March 13, 2017, 20:58:30 PM »
After enjoying a selection of quilts from a Houston Festival, I thought I'd explore the same blogger's website and came across this lovely project. I'm not an embroiderer beyond a bit of cross stitch and tapestry but there's something that really appeals to me in Sashiko and it works so naturally with this jeans project.
